Plastic ribbed wooden boat by 

For info only
I spotted this wooden boat, in Alnmouth, way back in 2008 with what appears to be some plastic ribs.
What do you think???

My main interest is painting Aviation Art.
I get a lot of enjoyment researching the historical background behind the picture I’ve been commissioned to paint.
I work in acrylic on my big paintings on canvas board but use water colors, pastels, soft and oil, for smaller pieces.
I also enjoy doing pet portraits in soft pastels on tinted paper, from photographs. Ideal presents for Xmas and birthdays.

    The hull’s wooden (I hope!) . . . . . actually so are the ribs, look at the tops where the paint has come off just under the gunwhale

  • The hull is definately wood. Some ribs are square ie the wooden one while the yellow plastic are rounded and the pinkish paint has not adhered too well.
    We’ll never know for sure now as the boat has been destroyed.
    Cheers !!!

    These are great, I love the “patina”. I painted the inside hull of my Columbia 24’ sloop that same aqua color so when the water reflects sunbeams inside it feels like I’m in a swimming pool. Aloha from Hawaii, Joseph.

  • Oh! to have a boat and live in Hawaii,
    I had a 2 day stop over in 1960, on the way to Australia in an RAAF Charlie 130.

    It’s Changed a bit since then along the coast but the ocean is still the same, and the interior is still as beautiful as ever. Aloha.
